Taryn Shank might cut this article out of the newspaper for her scrapbook. North Hagerstown math teacher David Warrenfeltz might even cut it out and hang it on his wall. "Mr. Warrenfeltz will put the story on the board if I say something about calculus," said Shank, a North senior. "But I don't know what to say. ... I love calculus, and I love running. " Enough said. Shank pulled away from teammate Alison Harrell in the final half-mile on North's 3.1-mile course Wednesday to win the girls race in 21:40, while leading the Hubs to a convincing 15-50 victory in their dual meet with South Hagerstown.

Michael Miller recently did something to make his mom proud - he earned his high school diploma with honors. Miller's only regret is that he didn't do it sooner and that it took place behind bars. The Harford County native scored 310 on the GED exam at the Maryland Correctional Training Center. A perfect score is 380 and anyone who gets more than 300 is recognized with a certificate of membership to the "300 club. " Miller, 22, said the test was not easy. It required problem-solving ability and the need to read and write quickly and well, he said.

" It was Johnson's creativity in the kitchen that impressed judges in The Herald-Mail's 18th Cookie Exchange Contest. Her original recipe for Everything Christmas Cookies won her $100 and top honors in the field of 29 entries.
